If Sunspot is on here today, she could tell you about how she does it. She lives a little north of me and they have gotten slammed with over 5 feet of snow in less than 2 days.
I don't get it as bad as Sunspot's town, but it is still upstate NY so we do get a lot. I cope with it by pretending it's not winter--close my curtains, stoke up the fireplace, and distract myself by watching tv, reading, eating lots of carbs and the occasional . At work I faced my desk away from the window so I don't have to look at the snow.
I try to go on vacation to someplace warm each winter and just spend my time obsessing about how warm it's going to be until I get there. I also spend lots of time imagining what it's going to be like when I move to the desert (my dream).
In the meantime I wear long johns every day, 2 prs of socks, and stockpile my kitchen with food each autumn. We sleep with 3 comforters and flannel sheets.
